Works in Progress- Late November

Thought I would show you what I am working on right now.  First up is the remake of my “Hairy Leg” Quilt.  This fun quilt was designed with my good friend, Lori Seavey-Christian, when we made quilts together.  The name comes from the “hair” I quilted into Lori’s quilt.

Sharp eyes will notice that I still have to quilt in the legs and hair still.  LOL  I plan to use different color thread for this.  Anyway, this quilt is free-handed (meaning it is hand guided) with my A1 longarm quilting machine.

Next up is my Tropical Leaf design that I am using pigment paint to color.  As you can see in this picture, I only have one section/color completed so far:

I decided I needed some new colors, so I am awaiting my pigment order to finish.  The digital designs of my Tropical Leaf set is available at Digitech Designs.  I do have lots more digital designs waiting to be released in 2013, too.

Because I tend to work in several mediums at once- I am also working on a freeform beaded project for a quilt.  I hope to finish several quilt designs featuring my freeform beaded work on them in 2013!

Your turn- what are YOU working on?  Hugs, Carla

  1. Carla, As always both of your WIP quilts are stunning. If I could free motion quilt as well as you, I would not ever need to have a computerized machine. It is so beautiful and looks perfect. I’m finishing up some customer quilts (pantos) before the end of the month (OMG tomorrow is the last day)! I guess I’d better hurry.

  2. Hi Carla your work leaves me breathless. I wish I could make feathers like you. At the moment I’m taking a online class to do feathers, I’m still practicing with pencil and last night I tried doing it on machine…roflmbo…. Still need many practice times. I’m determined to get it right. I want to create beautiful blocks like yours. Thanks for sharing your incredible talent, hugs Denise.:)
